Our Unexpected Surprise

Our Unexpected Surprise

This past weekend, we got a very UNEXPECTED SURPRISE! One of our sweet clients contacted us last year asking us to repair and refinish an antique entry table that she saved from the rubble of an old local plantation home. At the time, she was not exactly sure about the look she wanted to go with for this piece and said that she would get back to us once she made her decision.

Well, she contacted us again last Friday asking if she could drop it off to us the following morning. Once she arrived, we stepped outside to get it unloaded, and to our SURPRISE…. Continue reading

So we had NO SCHOOL TODAY! YAY!!! And Patrick was THRILLED because the day that he has been counting down for all year was finally HERE!

They had movie ticket to go see the NEW Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens), NEW Star Wars shirts laid out, and a stack of all of their favorite candy. The kids could hardly contain their EXCITEMENT when they saw all of their GOODIES that the elves brought for them!Continue reading

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

Five Things You Should Know About This Picture… Meet Our Elves!

1. It has started! The stress of every parent during Christmas…. ELF ON THE SHELF SEASON! There is always that GUT WRENCHING FEAR that we will slip up one night and forget to.. well, YOU KNOW! I don’t want to SPILL THE BEANS in case someone’s child happens to come across this post and, in turn, becomes an UNBELIEVER of all things Christmas! 😉

2. So, here they are… meet our elves, Jolly-Jingles and Holly-Bells. Their names can be switched around to become 2 of our most favorite Christmas songs… “Holly Jolly” and “Jingle Bells.” Santa first sent Jolly to us several years ago as our family’s elf. But since our girls were a little uncomfortable changing in front of a boy elf in their bedroom, as well as using the bathroom in front of him if he happened to be in there, Santa decided to send us a girl elf last year. PROBLEM SOLVED!

To All Of Our Clients Who Have Had The Misfortune Of Seeing Us In Our Work Attire…

To All Of Our Clients Who Have Had The Misfortune Of Seeing Us In Our Work Attire…

To all of our clients who have ever had the MISFORTUNE of seeing us in our “WORK ATTIRE”… we do apologize for our appearance. HAHA! We typically have RAGGEDY ENSEMBLES on. Which is what one could expect since roughly 90% of our clothing has PAINT, STAIN, and SEALANT splattered all over them.  We are also typically covered in SAW DUST, my HAIR is almost always pulled up in a PONY TAIL, or back in a BRAID, and I pretty much NEVER HAVE MAKE UP ON. Continue reading
